The breweries displayed with a yellow background do not appear anymore on the list of the Federal Customs, yet seem to be still active. I will keep them for some time in the hope that they will regulate their situation.

"Brewer: Jörg Kambach and Matthias Oeschger.
This family-owned brewery has been founded in 1828 by Fridolin Tschudi. It is nowadays run by the 5th generation and has 16 employees. Brews on a 60 hl installation. Its production output has remained very stable since the 70s (9'000 hl in 2017/2018). Almost all the production (95%) is sold in the canton of Glaris. The products were for a long time weak and unimaginative german-style beers but this recently changed. Offers 5 core beers and 3 seasonals in German styles as well as a ""Sagenbiere"" (legend) serie of 4 beers in so-called craft styles. Since recently also producing whiskies."
